Our Work with Parents

We work across the Greater Merseyside Area, in Halton, Knowsley, St Helens, Sefton and Wirral. Through our Career Connect team, we offer a service in schools and colleges in these areas.

We have Centres in all of these areas where young people and their Parents can call in for help, advice, information and guidance.  click here to find us
Our Advisers are professionally qualified, friendly and with a real interest in helping young people make the most of the available opportunities.

If your son or daughter is not in education, employment or training (NEET) our Advisers will work with them to ensure they are able to access appropriate learning and training opportunities.

Our Advisers work at community centres, libraries and with other agencies where young people meet so we can see young people where they feel most comfortable.

In schools and colleges the help and support Careers Advisers offer can be provided via group work or through one to one interviews or more intensive support on issues like bullying or health and relationships
We offer support from year 9 through to Sixth form and College.
